Mummelsee, Baden-Baden

3.3
Lying on the Black Forest Hochstrasse scenic route, is one of the few cirque lakes in the Black Forest remaining from the Ice Age. The lake is 1,032 m (3,385 ft) above sea level, and its surrounding mountains offer excellent hiking opportunities. The highest mountain, Hornisgrinde, features a lookout tower at the top--the hike up takes about one hour. You also can take a stroll around the lake or rent a paddleboat. A number of picnic spots, as well as a hotel and a restaurant with lakeside terraces, provide plenty of places to rest. Our Baden-Baden vacation trip planner makes visiting Mummelsee and other Baden-Baden attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

    Very touristy with exhorbitant prices on most things The lake is nice, but not a must see. Some days the cards are lined up the road making it hard to get to  more »

    We were surprised by the number of tourists, it is true a Sunday in August. The place is very pretty. The restaurant is chic and good quality traditional cuisine. However we were disappointed by the dry burgers. Prices in the restaurant are relatively correct given the standing, however the grocery prices that are still relatively expensive. The Mummelsee is advisable before or after the meal.
